Unable to disable the footer option after upgrading to Liferay DXP 7.2


1) Not able to disable the footer option of the classic theme after upgrading the Liferay 7.0 to Liferay 7.2

2) Steps to reproduce

  • Go to the public page configuration
  • To disable show footer, unchecked show footer option.
  • After clicking on save, the option is disabled.
  • Go to the site and the footer is not present.
  • Now, click the notification option from the user menu (right side of the portal)
  • Footer is present.



  • Liferay 7.2



  • In the DXP7.0, it marks the user manage pages (notifications, workflow, etc) as private pages.
  • In the DXP7.2, it marks these pages as public pages as default. However, when run the upgrade from 7.0 to 7.2. The process keeps the value from 7.0 to 7.2 structure. Hence, these pages act as private pages.

To resolve the issue , following steps need to be followed:

  • Control Panel > Configuration > System Settings > Users > Personal Menu > Personal Applications Look and Feel: Change to Current Site
  • Save this change.
  • Now the user pages will have expected behavior i.e., footer would disable for every page (workflow, notification, etc)    


Additional Information

  • Reported behavior is not observed in a clean instance of Liferay 7.2.
  • Locale exception
